    A 76 year old woman comes to your office for a consultation. Yesterday, she had left hemiparesis for 30 minutes. She thought it was a stroke but now she is completely asymptomatic. She has a history of atrial fibrillation, angina and hypertension. She takes aspirin 81 mg and propranolol 80 mg.
    What is your appropriate initial management for this patient?
    A- Schedule another appointment whenever she has symptoms
    B- Schedule transesophageal echocardiography
    C- Schedule carotid duplex ultrasonography
    D- Schedule MRI to the brain
    E- Obtain CT scan of the head
